Where i can find Advanced Surface Tool?

I find this topic:
https://www.grasshopper3d.com/group/advanced-surface-tools?commentId=2985220%3AComment%3A1556150&xg_source=activity

But on food4rhino this addon now i don’t find, does someone know how called now Advanced Surface Tool or where i can download old version?

It was made by @TomTom

As far as I know he doesn’t make it anymore because the limitations of Rhino could not allow it to perform the way he needed to make class A type surfaces (specifically blending). Atleast that’s what I think I remember him saying.

No, my laziness and lack of knowledge was the only limitation. In order to make AsTools good, I would have needed to refactor everything and spend a massive amount of time with it.
This version is the latest build (inoffical and two years old). Works on Rhino 6 as well, but is not compatible with the version which was uploaded on Food4Rhino.

Ohh thx a lot! Can’t wait to come home to explore all this.

Hi @TomTom

Could you update the link on http://rhino.github.io/#ASTools and https://www.grasshopper3d.com/group/advanced-surface-tools so users don’t get redirected to a dead link on food4Rhino?

Thanks

Nobody asked me to put it in there and I’m not ok with putting anything on Food4Rhino. I don’t support it anymore, nor I want wasting any more time with it. After I deleted on Food4Rhino some people asked to reupload, I decided to give the latest dev build I made here and finish. Its a failed project…
Its up to you guys to delete anything related to it.

Hi Tom, ever thought about releasing it as an opensource project? Licensing it with GPL or something, I know you care about pirates.
Since you do not want to continue your work forward, someone might.
